It’s that time of the year where we get out grandma’s box of handwritten holiday cookie recipes and start baking! We all have our favorites from ginger snaps to toasty macaroons. If you’ve lived in the south long enough, you’ll know that some recipes might seem a little odd or even experimental, but trust me, even the weird ones will bring a smile to your face after taking that first nibble.
When I was growing up, my mom would make these sweet and tangy Orange Snowball Cookies and they’ve just always reminded me of the holidays! If you’ve never tried these, I encourage you to give this recipe a spin. They are easy to make and taste amazing. Enjoy!
